Hawaii health exchange offers funds for outreach

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii's health insurance exchange is offering grants to help people learn about and sign up for plans offered under President Barack Obama's new federal health care law.

Hawaii Health Connector officials said Thursday that the exchange is looking for marketplace assisters to give personal help on each island. They'll help individuals and small business owners with plan options, enrollment and learning about tax implications and costs.

Hawaii Health Connector spokeswoman Rose Hughes says the goal is to simplify the process for small business owners, so they can provide insurance for employees and take advantage of tax credits.

The grants for organizations and individuals will be awarded for one year starting July 1. They'll support up to 10 full-time jobs and up to 20 part-time jobs.
